“Reese’s Halloween Candy Converter Machine” was first released to the public on Sunday, October 28, during a Halloween parade in Tarrytown, New York.

The machine allows people to trade in the candy they don’t want for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Unfortunately, New Yorkers will be the only ones getting their candy wishes granted this year.

This Wednesday at exactly 4 p.m., Reese’s candy converter — a huge orange machine you can’t miss — will be set up outside Washington Square Park on 5th Avenue in New York, and remain in place until 9 p.m. Reese’s is expected to give out up to 10,000 peanut butter cups, Lingeris said.

Apple introduced iOS 12 following its historic iPhone event last month, adding the Shortcut app to let users allow Siri to do more tasks, such as take a photo, put your phone in ‘Do not disturb’ mode or making your commute more enjoyable. But one creative user has developed a way to turn iPhones into the civilian version of a bodycam, letting users record their interactions with police in a sly manner. Reddit user Robert Petersen has created the shortcut called Police, which triggers a series of actions. First, it lets users send a text message to a predetermined friend to let them know they are being pulled over. Then it pauses the music that might be playing in their phone and gets access to the camera to start recording the interaction. It also sets the phone in ‘Do not disturb’ mode. Users need to say “Hey Siri, I’m getting pulled over” and the shortcut triggers automatically.

There may be a second act for Toys R Us, the retail wonderland for children that turned out the lights at hundreds of stores for what was thought to be the final time over the summer. After joining the parade of retailers that never recovered from the recession and radical changes in the way Americans shop for toys and everything else, a group of investors is planning a comeback for Geoffrey the giraffe and his crew.

The group, made up of secured lenders, said in a bankruptcy court filing Tuesday that it’s scrapping an auction for Toys R Us assets despite receiving a number of qualified bids.
,br>The group now believes that it stands a better chance of a realizing a return on its investment by potentially reviving the toy chain, rather than selling it off for parts. The group will attempt to establish a “company that maintains existing global license agreements and can invest in and create new, domestic, retail operating businesses under the Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us names.”

The investors said they’ll work with potential partners to develop new ideas for stores in the U.S. and other countries “that could bring back these iconic brands in a new and re-imagined way.”

Vance Jr. asked a court to scrap 3,042 warrants for people who missed court dates and to toss out the cases themselves

A Shreveport woman is gaining attention after her choice in discipline was widely praised by residents. After her son was suspended from school, Shreveport resident Demetris Payne took to social media as a part of his punishment. Posting on the Facebook group South Bossier Online Yard Sale, Payne offered her son’s yard services for free.

Payne says since she posted the advertisement, she had to make a schedule to keep up with all the responses. “He’s booked up for this weekend, so it’ll be next weekend. I got so many requests from buy, sell, and trade that I have to make a schedule.”

A Massachusetts medical marijuana dispensary has created a culinary delight for patients who don’t want to smoke their pot or eat it in the form of sweets. Quincy-based Ermont Inc. has been selling cannabis-infused pizza for about three weeks to rave reviews.

Director of Operations Seth Yaffe says the company has a whole range of marijuana edibles, but he wanted to offer meals that patients could eat without a lot of sugar. The 6-inch cheese pizzas sell for $38 a piece.

Researchers claim to have developed a simulator which can feed information directly into a person’s brain and teach them new skills in a shorter amount of time, comparing it to “life imitating art”. They believe it could be the first steps in developing advanced software that will make Matrix-style instant learning a reality.

They studied the electric signals in the brain of a trained pilot and then fed the data into novice subjects as they learned to pilot an aeroplane in a realistic flight simulator.

The study, published in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, found that subjects who received brain stimulation via electrode-embedded head caps improved their piloting abilities and learnt the task 33 per cent better than a placebo group.

On our way to the hole, we saw the moose make several attempts at getting out of the water, but it could neither get up nor break the ice to get into shore. My partner, Sigrid Sjösteen, eagerly started to chop a pathway to shallower water, where it could reach the bottom and get out. We took turns chopping for about 30 minutes before the moose was out of danger.
